In this collection of original woodcut prints and writing, we see insights brought by Santa Barbara's seasons and settings to one of its natives. Patti Jaquemain is a talented artist who has unconsciously absorbed the moods and the color of the yearly cycle in her homeland over all of her life. Now, consciously, she translates her personal impressinos of those moods and colors.
